the university of virginia center for politics. as we head into first presidential debate, we'll talk about the state of america at home and abroad with the distinguished panel. michelle rhee, former head of the washington, d.c. school system and founder of students first. economist mark zandi of moody analytics. bob woodward, author of "the price of politics" and hendrick smith, author of the new book "who stole the american dream?." it's all ahead on "face the nation." captioning sponsored by cbs from cbs news in washington, "face the nation" with bob schieffer. >> schieffer: and we welcome now to the broadcast new jersey governor chris christie. governor, thank you for being here. governor i have to start off by saying i don't hear very many republicans these days who think mitt romney is doing very well. what's your take here? >> well, he's had a tough couple of weeks. let's be honest. i'm not going to sit here and come on this morning and sugar coat the last couple of weeks. they've been tough. but here's the great news for republicans -- we have a candidate who is going to do extraord
's obama advantage across the board. look at ohio, plus seven. virginia, plus five. these are key states. is the race over? >> absolutely not. and that happened pretty quickly, right, david? you saw the change in those polls happen very quickly. and i'm here to tell you it can happen very quickly back the other way, and i think the beginning of that is wednesday night when governor romney for the first time gets on the same stage with the president of the united states and people can make a direct comparison about them and their visions for the future. and wednesday night is the restart of this campaign and i think you'll see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. >> how do you restart a campaign, governor, at that last moment where you can reach tens of millions of people? why isn't it too late to believe that after you announce your running mate, after you have your own convention, that you can restart with the presidential debates? >> absolutely. you'll have tens of millions of people for the very first time, david, really tuning in and paying attention to this r
, virginia, north carolina and florida. so, what does this mean and how does it feel on the map? i'm going to go to our little battleground map here and as always, follow along up top when i make the state changes there, you'll see those numbers change there. so let's just give the president the states where he did better than that 13-point gap nationally. well then you would give him nevada, you'd give him colorado, wisconsin, and new hampshire. and look where it puts him, david. at 266. he just needs one more state. and i can tell you the one that they think they can exploit the gender gap and gender issues more than any other in the rest of those last five battlegrounds and that is virginia. as you know, david, just watching television in the northern virginia market you see a lot of ads, particularly that one on planned parenthood, having to use mitt romney's words. they think particularly in virginia, through as well as colorado, that they could exploit the gender gap and get to 270 without winning any other issues. >> chuck todd, thank you very much. carly fiorina, this is so importa
this question, the virginia senate debate between tim kaine and george allen. they were talking about there there should be a minimum federal income tax. here is the question. do you believe everyone should pay income tax? >> everyone pays taxes. the statistics coming out -- i would be open to a proposal to have a minimum tax for everyone. >> would you be open to that, governor? >> maybe. it's my first time hearing about it. >> that's where i was going. i think we go to a question of taxes, tax cuts, tax increases and so forth too fast. the first question ought to be what is it we want the governor to do and not do? what is the sensible and fair way to pay for that? we all have a stake in educating our kids. we all have a stake in ensuring this country is well defended and investing in an infrastructure for growth. we all have a say in the american dream. we used to come together around that. the kind of sharp, poisonous political discourse that characterizes so much of what goes on. no disrespect at all, not just personal, in saying that, but i think the country is hungry for a convi
this question in the senate, in the virginia senate debate between tim cain and george allen. they were talking about whether there should be a minimum federal income tax. this is how tim kane answered the question. >> do you believe everyone in virginia should pay something in federal incox tax. >> would you be open to that, governor? >> maybe, the first i'm hearing about it. should everybody have skin in the game? >> well, that's where i was going. i think we go to this question of taxes, tax cuts, tax increases and so forth. too fast. we, it seems to me the first question ought to be, what is it we want government to do and not do? what's the sensible way and fair way to pay for that? i really believe in this notion, just as president does, of common as you and common destiny. that we all have stake in educating our kids. we all have a stake in assuring that this country is well defended. we all have a stake in investing in the infrastructure that creates a platform for economic growth and opportunity. we all have a stake in the american dream. we used to come together around that the kind o
. but that's what he does. right after the interview where did he go? went to virginia, where some of the cuts, if they take place -- people seem to have amnesia about the whole point sequester was. it was the fourth conversation, fourth new negotiations. nobody wants to sequester. the whole point was pick something that each party thought was something that a third rail in their -- in their conferences so that they would force them to have a new conversation, so the whole re-imaging of the sequester. i understand the battleground state politics that romney's up to. but i think he's walking into a trap. >> bill bennett, my impression spending time with governor romney and talking to him about these issues on camera and off is that he understands the need for some level of compromise, and to even take on conservatives. and yet in this interview there was a level of rigidity, even to the point saying this deal on a defense sequester makes no sense. >> well, he's distinguish between the willingness on principle to compromise and the willingness to compromise on principle. and that's a
